North Fulton Golden Games - Active Adults
May 1st - 22nd, 2014
I just received my registration form for the 20th Annual North Fulton Golden Games. These games provide adults fifty and older an opportunity to participate in a variety of sports competitions, meet new people, learn new leisure skills and become more aware of the recreational activities available to them. That's what the brochures says and I can attest to that being true, having participated in these games last year.
I am a member of the Johns Creek Adult Center (a type of senior center) where I play Bocce Ball two times a week. Last year we entered the Golden Games with two teams in the beginner category and my team won the gold medal (you may remember me bragging about that). So this year we just named our team members and are ready to compete in this years games, but this time we are entering in the advanced category. Our neighboring city Roswell has a very advanced team that play five days a week and we will play on their home court. But we are geared up for victory!
My buddies Lamont and Genette won one of the ballroom dancing contest last year and I hope to see them perform this year. Sorry Shag does not qualify as ballroom dancing.
There are many many competitions going on. I may even try the one mile walk, golf putting since I was the victory on the cruise putting contest. Maybe the opening ceremonies and Bunco will do it for me.
It is true that these are great socialization events and are just plain fun. When is the last time you played a fun game?
So if you are in North Fulton County (north of Atlanta) consider signing up for the Golden Games and we will see you there. See any senior centers for information. If you are not in this area, still see your senior center because there are comparable Spring Competitions going on all over like the Senior Olympics.
Here are many other active adult activities.
